crank position sensor

4litre 93 jeep cherokee country automatic. I have been looking for a cps and every where I look there seems to be a difference in price and what year and model but they look identicle even at the plug in . Is there a difference or can I use any one that looks identical. See one place it will say it fits this and another will say something different.

I wouldn't go by "looks".

I have worked on quite a few xj's and by far have had the best luck with purchasing replacement crank sensors directly from Jeep. Quality control/reliability/longevity is higher than many of the aftermarket ones, which are very hit and miss.

Buy it from Jeep and you'll know you're getting the right sensor to mate with your vehicle.

If you do purchase aftermarket, getting the correct sensor should not be a problem for a partsman that knows their stuff. It is basic application data.

Without "data", all you have is an opinion!
